Specials Teachers are AWESOME!!

The Isaac Fox PTO is so grateful for the energy and talents our "specials" teachers bring to our students each and every day. As a small token of our appreciation, our PTO room parent committee is randomly selecting the name of one of our super 'specials' teachers each month to award with a gift card.

We are excited to announce our November winner: Dan Keilman! Mr. Keilman is our Band Teacher at Isaac Fox. He also splits his time at Sarah Adams and May Whitney.

Our December Winner is Mrs. Chopra! Mrs. Chopra is a reading Specialist at Isaac Fox.

Thank you for all you do for our students!
